i was talking with two people here...one from CA and one from NJ. their property taxes for their single, regular sized homes on teeny lots were FAR greater than the taxes on my home on 5 acres and my 40 acres up north with a nice little cabin on it together. and MN is consistently rated as one of the best places to live...( and we still give far more to the feds than we get back!)

These are the words of a shallow BocaJew anarchist lush: "I said I am against legislating human behavior."

Ten Commandments?

Ancient Sumer's Code of Ur-Nammu?

Hammurabi's Laws?

The League of Nations' International Law?

The Bill of Rights? The entire U.S. Constitution?
Acts of Congress and the President?

You have a law down there, too, governing human behavior.

Something about Public Drunkenness.

There ought to be a law against stupid people like you.

Holding out hope for 239 people onboard a plane missing for over two days, a plane that dropped off radar over the ocean without radio contact means what?

real estate taxes here are 1.5% of assessed valuation, lower than in many other places....

maybe not lower than MN, but certainly lower than metropolitan areas of NY and NJ....

and the real estate market is stable and relatively inactive, primarily because of short supply due to lack of new construction.....

While Uruguay’s president grabbed international headlines for legalizing the government-controlled production and sale of weed to registered users, Mujica also presided over the legalization of abortion and gay marriage over the last two years.
In an interview with Brazilian news agency O Globo published Sunday, Mujica explained his administration’s logic.
“We applied a very simple principle: recognize the facts,” Mujica said, according to O Globo.“Gay marriage, please -- it’s older than the world. We had Julius Caesar, Alexander the Great, please. To say it’s modern, come on, it’s older than we are. It’s an objective reality that it exists. For us, not legalizing it would be to torture people needlessly.”
Uruguay became the third country in the Western hemisphere, after Canada and Argentina, to legalize gay marriage last year. The reform, backed by Mujica’s leftwing Broad Front, created one set of rules for all couples, replacing the words “husband and wife” with terms “contracting parties” for legal purposes, according to the Associated Press.
All couples may adopt children under the Uruguayan law.

Come on, Pedophilia and sex slavery are older than we are. Not legalizing them would be to torture people needlessly. NAMBLA has a membership of professional people from all walks of life including judges, politicians and teachers.

It does seem weird they haven't found one shred of evidence of a plane crash or an explosion in midair after three days.

Or no word from anyone if it was a hijacking.

I mean, it could have just exploded into a million pieces and sunk when these pieces hit the water or the currents took them further away. But luggage and other items on an airplane would have surfaced somewhere.

And maybe there will be evidence of that soon enough. But it really does seem odd that hasn't happened.

I watched a few round-table discussions between professionals regarding the disappearance. The honeycombed construction of so much of an airliner body says that some pieces will and do, in fact, float.

The electrical systems in modern airliners supposedly have (4) layers of redundancy. Radio communications also have redundancy. Not receiving radio communications on any frequency from a troubled airliner is puzzling. Vietnamese Traffic Controllers claim that Flight 370 actually made a quick U-Turn just as it disappeared from radar. Making a 180 degree variance from your flight plan demands open-channel notification to other flights in your area - for safety reasons. This did not occur.

Weather conditions were beautiful, balmy.

Intentionally or not, flying a huge airliner below radar above the ocean for great distances can be very dangerous. If, as is speculated by some, the aircraft was hijacked to fly under radar all the way to the coast, where could it possibly land? Jungle density in that area is extremely dense so an airliner crashing into the jungle may not be noticed. However, U.S. Military Satellite Imaging showed no telltale infrared appearances anywhere in the expanded search areas. Bizarre.

What's left? The Bermuda Triangle is vacationing off the coast of Vietnam?

LOST has left the Hollywood Stage lots and headed into a nearby reality.
